The Pedal Vision System was rolled out by Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio as a new fitness program for his Maricopa county prisons. This system converts human energy into electrical energy used to power a television or other electrical appliances.
A typical adult can generate 70 to 150 Watts of power. So as along as your television has power requirements within that range you will be able to pedal and turn on your TV with the energy from your body as it pedals this stationary bicycle generator.
Sheriff Arpaio says that half of his inmates are overweight, and that this is a way for them to get in shape while enjoying their favorite past-time -- TV.
One hour of pedaling powers one hour of TV viewing. If the inmate slows down while pedaling, a noise warns the exerciser that the TV is shutting down.
"We're going to do the best we can in our jail system to help the inmates lose weight, and at the same time, give them the luxury of watching whatever they want to watch on television," says Sheriff Joe.
The tattoo transformation of jailbird who had his face etched in ink
Inmate Michael Campbell
The before photo was taken following an arrest in 2003 for theft, and shows Campbell sporting three facial tattoos, including a menacing looking pitt-bull dog on his neck.
The after photo was taken recently when Campbell was booked and jailed, again for theft in Jefferson County. The latest image reveals a mosaic of markings on his face including a rather un-menacing polka-dotted bow tie tattooed on his neck.
Jefferson County officials have said that Campbell used his infrequent time on the streets to aggressively supplement his facial and neck artwork.

Female Inmates Seeking Pen Pals
Women in prison are looking for someone on the outside to write to through the US Mail to help make their time while incarcerated go by quicker. They typically seek someone to be a friend with compassion and understanding, open-minded, open hearted, with a sense of humor and a big shoulder. Writing allows them to share their dreams, their fantasies, their hopes for a better future upon their release. They need pen pals to keep their sanity and to remind them that there is a world outside those walls that they want to be a part of.
